  • Calipers

    A pair of reliable calipers is a critical tool that every mechanical designer should have at his or her desk.
  • Calipers Discussion

  • Micrometers

    Micrometers are similar to calipers, only they provide increased resolution in your measurements.
  • Micrometers Discussion

  • Dial Indicators Discussion

    Dial indicators are precision measuring instruments that, among other things, are used for measuring “runout”.
  • Force Gauge

    Force gauges (sometimes called load cells) are exactly what the name implies: a gauge that measures force.
  • Force Gauge Discussion

  • Gauge Pins

    Gauge pins are similar to feeler gauges, but instead of a thin flat shape they are cylinders
  • Feeler Gauges

    Feeler gauges allow us to measure very small gaps (usually on the order of thousandths of an inch), and often allow us to do so in areas that other measuring instruments (such as calipers) just won’t fit.
  • Temperature Sensor

    Temperature sensors allow engineers and technicians to take qualitative specifications such as “warm” or “hot” (or “cold”, for that matter) and translate them into actionable engineering requirements (minimum 85 deg F, between 125 - 135 deg F, 10 deg C, etc).
  • Temperature Sensor Discussion

  • Torque Wrenches

    Torque wrenches are tools that allow technicians and engineers to engage items with which they are interacting by applying very specific amounts of torque.
  • Torque Wrench Discussion
